Dave Brubeck’s 90th birthday to be celebrated with new documentary

HollywoodNews.com: With each passing decade, Dave Brubeck continues to amaze millions of fans across the globe. His quartet performed more than 50 concerts in 2010, and Brubeck still creates new composi¬tions. On Monday, Dec. 6, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will celebrate Brubeck’s 90th birthday with the premiere of “Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way,” a new documentary executive-produced by Clint Eastwood.

The documentary takes its name from one of Brubeck’s most famous tunes, “In Your Own Sweet Way.” Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way was produced and directed by filmmaker and longtime Eastwood collaborator Bruce Ricker, whose credits include “Tony Bennett: The Music Never Ends,” “Thelonious Monk: Straight No Chaser,” “The Last of the Blue Devils” and TCM’s Emmy®-nominated “Johnny Mercer: The Dream’s On Me.” Alec Baldwin is the narrator. In addition to serving as executive producer of the film, Eastwood chairs the Honorary Board of the Brubeck Institute at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif.

“Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way” tells Brubeck’s personal story, including his early musical training; studies with Darius Milhaud, the Dave Brubeck Quartet, featuring Paul Desmond; and the musical revolution caused by his introduction of new time signatures in jazz, such as in the jazz standard Take Five.

“Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way” features contemporary interviews, including George Lucas, Sting, Bill Cosby, Jamie Cullum, David Benoit and Yo-Yo Ma. Also included are previously unseen archival footage and photographs; vintage performances from the Newport Jazz Festival and the Monterey Jazz Festival; and a never-before-seen interview with Dave Brubeck and Walter Cronkite. Finally, here are also interviews filmed for the documentary with Dave and Iola Brubeck, that captures their longtime romance and artistic collaboration,

TCM’s premiere of “Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way” will be accompanied by “All Night Long” (1962), a jazz update of Shakespeare’s Othello featuring a great Brubeck performance. The Brubeck celebration will be preceded by a quartet of jazz films: “Blues in the Night” (1941), “Paris Blues” (1961), “Young Man with a Horn” (1950) and “The Strip” (1950).

In advance of Brubeck’s birthday, Legacy Recordings will release “Dave Brubeck: Legacy of a Legend,” a new 21-track double-CD compilation with every track handpicked by Brubeck. The commemorative collection, featuring extensive annotation and anecdotal liner notes written by his son Darius, will be available at all physical and digital retail outlets beginning Nov. 16 through Columbia/Legacy, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.

Also in celebration of Brubeck’s 90th birthday, Concord Music Group will release The Definitive Dave Brubeck on Fantasy, Concord Jazz and Telarc. This ambitious two-disc collection assembles some of Brubeck’s earliest session work from the 1940s as well as some of his more recent recordings from the past few decades. The CD is also set for release Nov. 16, 2010. The collection’s comprehensive track list was handpicked by Russell Gloyd, Brubeck’s manager, producer and conductor for more than 30 years.
